Reject Trump's Budget: The White House released their budget on Tuesday - and it is a cruel list of proposals that would have devastating impact on Americans. THE GOOD NEWS: Trump's budget needs the approval of congress. Please call your MOC's Michael Bennet, Cory Gardner and Scott Tipton and tell them to REJECT TRUMP'S BUDGET

If Trump gets his way, here are 16 of things that go:

  • Environmental education
  • Healthy school food for kids
  • Support for new forms of energy that don’t poison our planet
  • Support for fact-based scientific research
  • Climate science programs
  • Ability to protect clean air and clean water
  • Programs for the poor, including health care and disability payments
  • College loan programs for the poor and those who take jobs in nonprofit organizations
  • Protection for women’s health
  • Food assistance for older Americans
  • Nutrition programs for low-income women, infants, and children
  • Support for public libraries, PBS, and arts
  • Heating assistance for low-income people
  • Before and after school and summer programs for children in low-income communities
  • Emergency food assistance
  • Efforts to revitalize public housing

Comment period deadline Friday!
Tell Sec. Zinke not to roll back protection of Bears Ears National Monument

Action: Submit a letter to Interior Secretary Zinke, or call him at 202-208-7351 (Office of the Secretary) or 202-208-6291 (Office of the Deputy Secretary). Tell him to keep protections for Bears Ears National Monument.

Your public lands need you. The Department of the Interior is “reviewing” previous national monument designations with an eye toward eliminating or shrinking up to 26 monuments and Bears Ears in Utah is first on the chopping block. The comment period for Bears Ears ends on Friday, May 26th and it's up to you to ensure that some of the most spectacular and sacred lands in the west retain the protections they deserve.

The goals of the Trump administration and its anti-public lands allies are clear: shrinking monument boundaries, reducing protection and chipping away at the great tradition of preserving shared lands for all Americans to enjoy. 

Bears Ears in particular, is an especially magical area; many tribes have millennia-old connections to the place. In addition to its deep cultural heritage, the area contains some of the most spectacular scenery in the American southwest. Bears Ears was protected under the Antiquities Act following a years-long public outreach process. Nullifying it sets a dangerous precedent that calls into question the sanctity of all federally protected public land. If we allow the current administration to eliminate or shrink national monuments, where will they set their sights next?

Please submit a comment today; the deadline for Bears Ears is Friday. You can sign a pre-written letter here. Or you can go here to submit a unique comment in your own words. A unique, individual comment carries the most weight – it's worth the extra time it takes. And if you really want to be a conservation hero, you can also leave a message for Interior Secretary Zinke, asking him to respect the tribes and protect Bears Ears. 202-208-7351 (Office of the Secretary) or 202-208-6291 (Office of the Deputy Secretary).

Thanks so much for all your help in this critical effort.

Thank you to Wilderness Workshop for this daily action.

SAVE OUR NATIONAL MONUMENTS - THE BEARS EARS AND OTHERS!

On April 26, President Trump signed an Executive Order instructing the Department of the Interior to review 27 National Monuments created by presidents, both Democratic AND Republican, since 1996.

Comment today via regulations.gov or monumentsforall.org to tell President Trump and Secretary Zinke that you support Bears Ears and all of the other monuments that are at risk. 

Since 1906 when Teddy Roosevelt designated Devils Tower as a National Monument, the Antiquities Act has been used to protect significant cultural, natural, or scientific features of our beautiful country. Many Monuments designated under the Act have gone on to become National Parks but *all* of them serve a deeply important job of protecting our public lands for decades to come.

Furthermore, in 1938, FDR attempted to get rid of a National Monument and his attorney general let him know that he could not undo a designation under the Antiquities Act without Congress's approval. Remind our leaders that these lands were designated by Presidents Clinton, G.W. Bush, and Obama for posterity and that is not to be taken lightly.

Trump says he listened to those members of Congress who want to review the existing monuments’ designations. He heard them, so let him hear you. Until May 26, you have the chance to comment directly on the issue.

Speak up. Your words matter.

Prioritize Our Health and Safety Over Corporate Profits.  STOP the state's decision to appeal the Martinez ruling!  Call Governor Hickenlooper TODAY:  855-969-5613 or 303-866-2885

On March 23, the Colorado Court of Appeals sided with youth plaintiff Xiuhtezcatl Martinez in a landmark decision that gives our right to a livable climate precedence over oil and gas development.  

This was a huge win for the people of Colorado, but now the Colorado Oil & Gas Conservation Commission (COGCC) is threatening to use state funds to reverse that decision with an appeal that might once again put profits over people.  Colorado lawmakers created the COGCC to regulate the oil and gas industry, but instead it has led us to more drilling.

The COGCC is already preparing the appeal, but Governor Hickenlooper has major influence over the agency's decision to challenge the ruling or to let it stand. We can pressure him into stopping this appeal — here's how:

Call Governor Hickenlooper: 855-969-5613
Script: Please let Governor Hickenlooper know that we expect him to respect the Colorado Court of Appeals' decision to place our health and safety above oil and gas profits, and to STOP the appeal of the Martinez ruling!

If we can stop the appeal, the court's decision will forever put our rights to health, safety and a livable future before oil and gas profits. New oil and gas developments only worsen our dependence on dirty fossil fuels and puts our health and water at risk.

In Martinez v. Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, six youth plaintiffs argued that the COGCC is infringing on their right to a livable future by continuing to permit oil and gas development without concern for public health or the climate. An appeal by the COGCC would be an outright attack on children and their right to clean air, safe water and a healthy future.

Colorado appeals court says state must protect health and environment before allowing oil and gas drilling – The Denver Post

100 MILLION plastic bottles are thrown away every day, choking our oceans in plastic waste. Governments meet in days to outline clean ocean

 SAVE OUR OCEANS: 100 MILLION plastic bottles are thrown away every day, choking our oceans in plastic waste. Governments meet in days to outline clean ocean commitments. If a million of us call on top polluters to stop the flood of plastics, the Head of the UN's Environment Programme will announce our petition to the plenary and use our voices to help oceans breathe again.

sign now

Dear friends,

By 2050, our oceans will have more plastic trash than fish.

It’s shameful. Half of the plastic made we use just once and throw out, choking our seas and all the animals in it.

But in days, our governments can stem this tide when they meet at a historic summit to outline their clean ocean commitments. Public pressure just got #2 polluter Indonesia to commit to a 70% reduction in plastic waste! Now we need to go after the other top polluters. 

If one million of us get behind a global call, the Head of the UN Environment Programme will announce our petition from the summit podium and work with us to push countries to ban single-use plastics and let oceans breathe again. Add your name: 

Click to save our oceans!

No matter where we live, each breath we take connects us to our oceans. Most of our oxygen is generated by them. They regulate our climate and weather, turn water into clouds that give us rain. And oceans provide a home for near 80% of all living things on earth. We can’t live without our oceans.

But now, our oceans can’t live without us.

Humans have destroyed ocean health and we need to fix it. The good news is, more than half the plastic trash in our oceans come from just five nations. If we focus global attention on the biggest polluters now, we can create global system-change for plastic-free seas. What’s missing is the motivation -- and that’s where we come in.

Let’s build a massive call on our governments to stop suffocating our oceans. Once we reach a million signers, Avaaz will launch targeted campaigns on the top polluters to ramp up the pressure for them to act.


Our community has fought fiercely to protect magnificent rainforests and vast areas of our oceans. Now time is running out to kill plastic pollution before it kills us.

Tuesday's D3 Daily Action

Here we go again... the BLM Methane Rule has been the subject of our D3 Daily Actions more times than we count. But we continue to push this topic because we believe that it is one that we can WIN! 

Please Call today - This VOTE could FINALLY happen as early as TOMORROW. 


If you have already called, CALL AGAIN!

Republican leaders have been delaying the vote because they haven't had the votes to pass the measure. And Senator Cory Gardner  is THE swing vote that could prevent this bill from passing. As of May 8th, his office stated that he is still undecided about how to vote on this issue and still taking commentary. 

Senator Gardner's primary argument for voting to overturn this regulation is that Colorado's rules are more strict than Federal regulations. But of course, Coloradans don't just breathe air or drink water from Colorado. If neighboring states have lax rules we will feel the effects. Indeed, we already do - even with the current regulations in place: Southwest Colorado is home to the highest concentration of methane pollution in the United States.

For our own health, and to ensure a healthy future for our children, we must hold the Senate accountable. Coloradoans didn’t vote for dirty, dangerous air.

HERE ARE SOME TALKING POINTS FOR YOUR CALL: 

  • I am calling to urge Senator Gardner to vote against overturning BLM’s methane waste prevention standards.
  • Without strong BLM standards, contaminated air will hurt our families’ health.
  • Colorado's strong rules regarding methane leaks simply don't matter... if neighboring states have lax rules, we will all suffer - we need federal regulations to protect us from states to our west. 
  • SW Colorado is already home to the highest concentration of methane pollution in the United States. 
  • If Senator Gardner believes in creating and keeping jobs for Colorado, he should vote to uphold the BLM methane waste rule - otherwise, specialists in charge of preventing these leaks will lose their jobs. 
  • By preventing these leaks, the saved gas can be used to to supply up to 740,000 households per year.
  • Venting and flaring natural gas rips off American taxpayers who don’t get the royalties from the development of our collectively owned resources
  • Methane 86 times more potent than CO2 as a greenhouse gas. 
  • Methane also causes ground–level ozone, a significant contributor to health issues like asthma.
  • Senator Gardner has stated that he believes in Climate Change - methane is a Greenhouse Gas and, leaked into the atmosphere, it will speed up global warming. 
  • I urge Senator Gardner to oppose this blatant attempt to give the oil and gas industry a free pass to throw away our money at the expense of our health

Time is running out on the Congressional Review Act  which gives lawmakers 60 legislative days to undo regulations enacted by the executive branch. Although Congress had used the obscure law just once before Trump's tenure, lawmakers have succeeded in putting 13 bills on Trump's desk to overrule Obama administration rules this year. Let's not make it 14!

Lend your help now to defend Bears Ears, Grand Staircase-Escalante and other National Monuments.

24 National Monuments at Risk NOW

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke is preparing for a visit to Utah NEXT WEEK.  Please call him today:  202-208-7351

Script: Hi. I’m calling to oppose Trump’s executive order. Bear’s Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monuments are treasures. National monuments such as Canyon of the Ancients and Brown’s Canyon in my home state of Colorado (or see link above to find National Monuments at risk in your state) are protected, citizen-owned land, and I strongly oppose any efforts to extract resources from them.

Or tweet at Secretary Zinke; his handle is @secretaryzinke

Additionally, call Representative Scott Tipton, Senator Michael Bennet and Senator Cory Gardner and demand that they protect our monuments by standing up to the Trump Administration's policies regarding our public lands.

President Trump's newest executive order to roll back a 20 years of presidential respect and protection for our land came yesterday.  24 national monuments, including Grand Canyon-Parashant National Monument, Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument and Basin and Range National Monument, as well as a host of Pacific Ocean monuments, including the World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument are now at risk.  

Without federal protection, the lands can easily be used for drilling and mining for resources.  Our sacred backyards are at risk!!

Call Secretary Ryan Zinke @ 202-601-3839, Senator Cory Gardner and Representative Scott Tipton to voice your concern that stripping our national monuments are an assault on our historical, cultural and natural heritage!!!

Wednesday's D3 Daily Action

The fate of new rules to reduce methane emissions from oil and gas development on public lands remains in limbo.  Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell are plotting to weaken these standards so they can give oil and gas companies a free pass to recklessly vent pollutants into our air, which will be detrimental to the clean air of our region.

Tremendous grassroots pressure from  across the country has kept key Republican Senators, including our own Sen. Cory Gardner, undecided on the issue and we must continue this fight!  Our pressure on this matter is crucial before it is too late.  

Call NOW and urge Senator Gardner to vote NO on overturning the BLM's methane standards.

Protect Colorado's environment!  Please send an email to Democratic House majority leader, Crisanta Duran to let her know how much you’d like to see her support in bringing forth a bill that will set Measurable Climate Goals for our great state.

As shocking as this may be - Colorado currently has no measurable climate goals in place to set standards necessary to combat climate change.  Last year, Rep. Jeni Arndt of Fort Collins brought forward a “Measurable Climate Goals” bill that would have rectified this situation. It passed the State House of Representatives, but failed to pass the Senate.

Jeni is trying to bring a new and improved version of the bill forward this year, but has so far been blocked by Democratic House majority leader, Crisanta Duran.  It’s important for Coloradans to weigh in loudly, swiftly and forcefully on this matter. 

A sample message is pasted below.  Cut and paste in your email if you’re pressed for time, however the more you personalize the message, the better!

Dear House Speaker Duran,

I was extremely disappointed to learn recently that you are not currently supportive of bringing a “Measurable Climate Goals” bill forward for a House vote this year. As you know, a similar bill passed was brought forward last year and was approved by the House. Colorado is already experiencing extreme climate impacts - wildfires, floods, droughts, extreme temperatures, pine beetle devastation of CO's forests, detrimental affects on winter sports, agriculture, ecosystems, and more. Meanwhile renewable energy has reached cost parity with fossil fuels and is bountiful in Colorado, benefiting jobs and our economy.

The Colorado Climate Plan does not currently have ANY measurable goals. A plan without goals is meaningless. It is essential that the State of Colorado step forward as soon as possible to regain its leadership position on combatting climate change. Please reconsider your position, and work to support a bill that contains greenhouse gas emissions reductions targets at least as ambitious as those set forth by Governor Ritter in 2008. The Earth’s climate can’t wait much longer for decisive action on this issue!

Sincerely,
Your name & address here

Monday's D3 Daily Action: Save Alaska's Wildlife!

CALL Senator Michael Bennet and Senator Cory Gardner to urge them to oppose SJ Resolution 18. The vote may happen TODAY so call ASAP! 

This bill promotes inhumane, unsustainable, and unsporting practices to kill wildlife by overturning a federal rule that was created to stop some of the most horrific hunting practices imaginable, including killing wolf and coyote pups in their dens, killing hibernating mother bears and cubs, using airplanes to scout grizzly bears for trophy hunters to shoot on land, and trapping grizzly and black bears with steel-jawed leg hold traps and snares. This egregious program clearly violates the wildlife diversity conservation mandates for the National Wildlife Refuge System, and contradicts both the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act and the National Wildlife Refuge System Improvement Act.

This Resolution is endorsed by the NRA, Safari Club International and other trophy hunting lobbyists, because it will allow big game hunters to kill the majestic animals of Alaska’s National Wildlife Refuges—publicly owned land paid for at taxpayer expense.

It should be noted that Representative Scott Tipton voted for this bill in the House so you could also give him a call to let him know what you think about that!

The SCRUB Act: Undermining Public Health and Safety

Call Senator Cory Gardner and Senator Michael Bennet to ask them to OPPOSE the SCRUB Act. 

The Searching for and Cutting Regulations that are Unnecessarily Burdensome (SCRUB) Act is yet another attempt by some Republicans in Congress and the Trump administration to undermine the regulatory agencies responsible for protecting the water we drink, the food we eat, and the air we breathe, among countless other potential threats to the public health and safety.

Here's some more info... The SCRUB Act (H.R. 998) creates the unelected Retrospective Regulatory Review Commission, which is tasked with reducing the cumulative cost of regulation by 15 percent, while only “minimally reducing the overall effectiveness of such regulation.” The Commission would be empowered to recommend repealing any regulation, which would then trigger a vote in Congress. The criteria used to assess if a regulation is outdated or stifling is dangerously broad and is highly susceptible to lobbying by big business. The SCRUB Act also includes a provision that would require agencies to offset the cost of any new rule by eliminating regulations already in place. The bill has passed the House and will be voted on in the Senate soon.

  • I am calling to urge Senator Gardner to vote against overturning BLM’s methane waste prevention standards.
  • Without strong BLM standards, contaminated air will hurt our families’ health.
  • By preventing these leaks, the saved gas can be used to to supply up to 740,000 households per year.

Ten is Better than One! Today, D3 is hosting an Action Event in coordination with ACT Telluride at the Sherbino Theater in Ridgway, Colorado from 2-5pm. Stop by for 10-20 minutes and complete up to Ten Actions!

We'll make it easy for you and your friends to have your voices heard by state and federal representatives. A series of action stations will be provided - from pre-addressed postcards ready to personalize and sign, to scripts for calling state and federal representatives on the spot, to computer stations and emails to send. 


If you are not in the Ridgway area, and would like an action for today, consider calling Representative Scott Tipton to ask him why he blocked a resolution that would have directed the House to request 10 years of Trump's tax returns, for review by the House Ways and Means Committee in a closed session. The Committee would then vote on whether to send the information to the House. Don't we deserve transparency and accountability from our President?
